2023 PSA EVENTS
If you are concerned and you have symptoms of prostate cancer the PSA test is a blood test to help detect prostate cancer. But it's not perfect and will not find all prostate cancers. The test, which can be done at a GP surgery, measures the level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein made only by the prostate gland. We suggest you ask your GP for a test in the first instance.
Our PSA events for 2023 are as follows:

Registering and booking a test
To book a test you will first need to register or if already registered sign in. You can access the registration and booking page by clicking here. Once you have created an account using your email address and entering you personal information your registration will be confirmed via email. This account will be used for the first and any further tests and, in the future, you will sent reminders to book further tests at the appropriate time. The personal information requested is vital for the consultant to accurately assess your risk of developing prostate cancer.
For example, if you are taking Dutasteide or Finasteride, medications used in the treatment of benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), you must include this in your information as these medications do not reduce your risk of prostate cancer but do affect your PSA score.
